First 'Creed' Trailer Hits and Hits Hard

Announced to much fanfare way back in 2013, the first trailer for the Michael B. Jordan starring "Creed" arrived late on Wednesday and if what we see in it proves any indication, its the movie "Rocky" fans have been waiting for.

Directed by Ryan Coogler ("Fruitvale Station"), the film serves as a "Rocky" franchise spinoff/continuation and follows Adonis Johnson Creed (Jordan), the son of famed boxer Apollo Creed, who died at the hands of Ivan Drago in "Rocky IV." Looking to become a boxer himself, Creed travels to Philadelphia where he tracks down his father's friend and former rival Rocky Balboa and asks the boxing champion to train him. Although Rocky left the ring behind long ago, he sees something in the young Creed and decides to help him win one of the greatest fights of his life.

Directed by Coogler and starring Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Tony Bellew and more, "Creed" arrives in theaters November 25, 2015.
